    my advice is to try and get in touch with robbie. he's a friend of mine, but i haven't ridden many of his boards. they look nice, he rides them well, as do guys like christian and cj, but those 3 could ride anything. so, i'd try and talk to him personally and ask away anything you want to know. he's a very nice guy.

    I cannot say I have ridden one but quite frankly, those glass jobs look like crap. The interview with the guy in longboard mag a few issues back made me want to vomit. The guy has a board called the kook killer...!>!!?!?!? Gosh he's sooooooo cool. In his interview he said something to the effect how he thought the fish thing was stupid or something like that...but he sure sells them. What a d-bag.

    I could never buy one of his boards just on principal

    • lack of solid, good reputation[/*]
    • varying opinions on product quality [/*]
    • artsy, imprecise color schemes [/*]
    • non-traditional appearance [/*]
    • controversial model names [/*]
    • offbeat interview responses [/*]
    • impossible, incomplete website[/*]
    Is it the making of the next big name in surfboards, or does it indicate an effort to make boards for the glitterati and the too-cool, that just may not make it as a long-term business?

    Thank you voice of reason. If anyone wants to try out a newer to the market shaper that makes quality boards try a Hunt or a Dano. Creme boards are just what the name implies, all fluff no substance.

    wanderer and chicksav,

    to each his own, but i have to ask, why the hell does "non traditional appearence" get thrown in? seems a bit petty. thought we were talking about surfboards. do you really buy your board based on the shapers looks? and, as for model names, i think you will find most are jokes. an attempt at humor, that fits the shapers joking around personality.

    p.s. i really like the looks of dano's. very nice boards. kind of feel like hunts are a little overrated though, just an opinion, sorry to all of the hunt-diehards.

    i've only tried boards that didn't have model names but i really dug them a lot. just seemed to do not only what i wanted it to do but a little more as well. turning on the nose and side slipping are definately amoung it's fortés. i'd recomend them for sure. As for the glass job i didn't see any problems with them at all. maybe it isn't aesthetically pleasing for some but i think that's different than bad glassing
